People ask what Arsenal needs to do to win and it's pretty simple. Spend the ****** money. I said it a while ago, all Arsenal cares about is making money for Kroenke. Nothing is going to change because fans will never make themselves heard with their pockets. Arsenal fans get their fanhood exploited in exchange for being in mediocrity limbo, all just to make a rich dude richer.

And Arsene really has just become a face for people to direct their emotion at. The real people to are the ones you don't see that run it as a business. If the people at the top of the club prioritized winning they would have jumped in themselves and signed someone this past summer instead of allowing their season to begin without signing a single outfield player.

I bet part of Arsene's salary negotiations factor in an extra 10% bonus for taking **** that should be thrown at the board.

"let me make all these dumb comments about signing people and pretend I can't zip up my jacket to seem like a huge doofus. That way people will blame everything on me and the dudes who pay me will give me that bonus."

How? At least he's trying to sign players and is open about it. Arsene isn't going to throw 50 something million at players like city did with Raheem Sterling

Do you realize how embarrassing it is to constantly come out and say you almost signed players but they preferred somewhere else? It's to play people like you into pretending there's real intent. If he really tried he would have persuaded those almost players and paid them. Arsenal's brand and history, the EPL, London, and attractive playing style make them a destination club. But there's a reason that they still don't get anyone.

And players with the English tax like Sterling aren't the only ones out there.

We could have easily signed a DM....still disturbing that we didn't. Now we're gonna gamble with Chambers at DM. He played as a DM in the u21 game today, and did okay from what I heard.
Whether it's the med/physio team or how we train....something clearly is wrong and has been for a while

Fully aware of how embarrassing that it is and it was also embarrassing losing our best players to other clubs. I'm content with this squad, just need 2-3 solid players.

For me, I think 2 players would suffice.
DM, we will be linked with Xhaka, Bender, Carvalho, Gonalons until the window closes.
A young striker like my boy Michy but City are interested in him. We were linked to Gabriel Jesus and or Gabigol but I don't see Wenger going after a young South American player considering 3rd parties, work permit issues and buy out clauses laugh.gif .
A top striker will be difficult to buy, especially in the winter.
I dont think we need any fullbacks/CB's atm.

Isco would be pimp.gif

But Bender would be more beneficial defensively.

Wish they could go for Icardi also but that's not going to happen


But Bender and Ozil in the midfield would be amazing.

We just need someone healthy up front who can finish indifferent.gif

I don't know whose the real reason to blame over at Arsenal for all the signing problems or lack there of whether Arense or the board but (off the top of my head guessing) 1 great player every 3 Windows is a bad management route. Forget about their tactics and play which keeps them at 4th every year but with a manager with his job concrete he should've had a big advantage over all these top clubs that now live through managers who have 2-3 year lifespans.

Random rant but I always loved what Arsenal represented/offered to the table. That and Henry was just too suave not to ignore

Lars needs or just had surgery so he wont' be ready to play for a while. Sven doesn't seem to be getting much burn at BVB, I think he would cost less too.

As a collective, they have failed to step up. It's always been that we haven't had enough money. But now we do have money, so what's the reason now? Not enough quality, aside from a world class striker, there are plenty of options out there

There is a pic out there, like the United pic (starting XI of rumored transfers), where it has Arsene's "almost signings" starting XI.

Ridiculously funny, funnier than the United one laugh.gif

roll.giflaugh.gif @ we all know he cant really zip up his jacket


Sometimes I feel bad for Wenger, really do. Other times I want to strangle this French/German hybrid and say "yoooo, wake the **** up man"

This season tho, no excuses. I don't want to hear the money excuse, the transfers excuse. They have more than enough talent to win when every other team in the competition is underachieving and the EPL at an all time low in talent - for gods sake, Leicester is in first place!!!!! (No disrespect Heggs)

This has to be the final straw, it's been way too long. If they have a chance at Pep, by all means, bring him in. Don't wait until 2018.
post #15238 of 50774
Wenger is a top manager, this team is letting him down and they need to step it up and that's all. We finally paid off our stadium debt and now it's time to buy some players. Also we have a bunch of people saying buy this guy or that guy and they have zero experience in managing top flight football or football in general, so keep speculating and speaking nonsense.

I agree to a certain extent and Wenger has made some serious mistakes with some players like Squillaci, Andre Santos, Gervinho, Djourou etc. Even then he didn't spend big money.. When he did he got Ozil and Sanchez, great signings. Yes he needs to spend money on more players and of course he won't spend money this January because players are cup tied and teams don't want to let go of players midseason but we did get Nacho and Gabriel in January. I still have faith in Wenger so hey I am still Wenger in until May then evaluate his performance as a manager at the end of the season.

Edit: Title is so fitting, Barcelona is unbelievable.. Going to bust out my Iniesta kit some time this week
